Chinatown senior pushed to death in Boston
A 72-year old Chinatown woman in Boston who was shoved to the ground and hit her head after bumping into another woman has died of her injuries, reports the Boston Globe.
A member of a film crew for the movie Ghostbusters described the suspect to police and officers were able to make an arrest a short time later.
Tajanetta Downing has pleaded not guilty to charges of aggravated assault and battery and assault and battery on a woman over 60.
“She pushed me and I pushed her back and I kept it going,” the 24-year-old Downing was quoted in a police report as saying.
The victim has not been identified. You can see reaction from witnesses in the clip below.

      RE: Elderly Chinatown woman pushed to her death: Could it be because there are a lot more African Americans living in this country than Asian Americans, Kenji?. That has more to do with the volume of coverage than anything else.
